New Resource from EatRight Ontario: Free DVDs on Nutrition Labelling

The EatRight Ontario series on nutrition labelling will help you and your clients better understand how to read the information on the nutrition facts table to help make healthier food choices. Some of the topics covered include serving size, calories, key nutrients and % Daily Value. One episode focuses primarily on carbohydrates, which will be especially useful for people with diabetes.

The videos can be found here in our targeted section on diabetes prevention: http://www.eatrightontario.ca/en/videolist.aspx.

As a bonus, if you’ve ever wondered about what to expect when calling EatRight Ontario, watch our sample call.
